Tysons’ Traffic No More? Mixed-Use Developments Seek to Change the Face of Tysons Corner

Tysons Corner is perhaps Fairfax County’s busiest four miles. In a small area, it houses several large corporations, the biggest mall in the DC/VA area, and tons of restaurants. While there are now two Metro stations in Tysons itself, many individuals choose to commute to the area by car. As such, Tysons is well-known for heavy traffic during most times of the day – particularly during rush hour.

Two developers are hoping to change this dynamic by opening mixed-use spaces in upcoming months: the Boro and Hanover Tysons. By adding heavy residential units, the Boro and Hanover will seek to attract individuals who no longer want to make the commute or face the traffic and will include shopping and leisure a short walk away.

  • The Boro (primarily located on Greensboro Drive) will include “the Rise,” a luxury condo and apartment complex that will be 27-stories tall. Whole Foods, Fish Taco, and Tasty Kabob will open next door to the complex. Across the road, popular health club chain Sport and Health will be available to residents who want more than the Rise’s new gym will have to offer.
  • Hanover Tysons will add 300 to 450 residential units close to Jones Branch Drive. Sitting on over 5-acres of land, the Hanover will include a public park and easy foot-access to several area restaurants opening in the area.

Both developments are still under construction however slated to open within the next year or so. Will they impact the traffic and make Tysons sought-after for more than shopping and work? If the Mosaic (Merrifield/Dunn Loring Metro) or D.C.’S Wharf (at the Waterfront) are any indication, there is a good chance that the developments may change the tenor of the corridor overall.
